Autumn. Leaves falling from the trees, darker nights and chilly weather-I love it! In my opinion, the best way to spend an evening in Autumn would have to be staying and being cosy! So, I have decided to write a blog post based upon everything I think you need to have the Ultimate cosy night in. (Warning, this post includes cosiness!)
For me, Autumn is of course a time for Halloween movies! I recently spent the whole weekend just watching Halloween films, my favourite being the Haunted Mansion. For me, I also like to shamelessly watch the Nightmare before christmas. This film is amazing in my eyes because not only does it incorporate halloween, but also Christmas-my favourite time of the year. I have a blog post on my 10 ten halloween movies if you are in need of any ideas! Watching a Halloween movie whilst sipping on a Pumpkin Spiced Latte is so generic…but sadly I am one of those girls, there is just something about this that makes me feel so lovely inside!
The key factor in the ultimate cosy night (and also the thing that makes me happy and doesn’t disappoint me) is by far food!These are my favourite foods to make my night the cosiest it can be:
Hot cocoa: Twinings has always been my favourite hot chocolate powder-if you haven’t tried it, it’s rich, creamy and just so delicious! If you really want to be adventurous though, you can make your own hot chocolate-Pinterest is full of recipes from Nutella to Oreo hot chocolate!
Pumpkin spiced cookies: I made some of these the other day from a recipe I found online which included a cinnamon cream cheese frosting and oh my golly gosh these were amazing! Bake up a batch of homemade cookies and eat them warm to really make your night special!
Soup: A simple autumn favourite. This is such a warming treat-my favourite being butternut squash and also broccoli and stilton! Pinterest is fabulous for finding delicious soup recipes, so find one you like the sound of and get cooking. With a slice of freshly baked, buttered bread, soup is a great addition to your ultimate cosy night!
